Summary:

If you don't mind paying a little more for gas and want a great SUV, this is a good choice

Faults:

Replaced radiator at 114000.

Replaced both door handles recently.

Drivers seat's electrical buttons not working anymore.

Passengers seat latch broke.

I had to replace the heat control valve at 115000.

Regular maintenance, brake pads once.

General Comments:

Beside some minor details described above, this car runs like a champ.

It is strong for being a 4X2, and handles pretty well in strong conditions, and while taking it to wild places.

I'd love it was 4x4, but I don't complain.

The engine is in perfect condition and very quiet.

It has great look, I would recommend it to anyone.

Very comfortable car, and you can have 5 people inside without losing power.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
